Claron Debuts Nil Cloud-Based Browser, WIF Imaging Platform

October 3, 2011 — Image processing software developer Claron Technology will highlight expansions and enhancements to its two major product families—Nil (No Install) and WIF (Withinsight Framework)—at RSNA 2011.

The company will add NilRead—a full-featured viewer designed to enable diagnostic reading anywhere, anytime and on any device—to its series of cloud-based exam viewers. NilRead can be accessed on tablets, smartphones, laptops or desktops. It includes support for all modalities; customizable hanging protocols; prior-current comparison; extensive measurements; many advanced visualization features (thin/thick slabs, MIP, volume rendering, PET/CT fusion); secure email bookmarks and real-time collaboration.

The system complements NilShare, the company’s existing viewer, which provides access for clinicians and patients to interactive reports and real-time consultations and collaboration. It was introduced last year and was quickly licensed by a number of modality and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) vendors.

The Nil series provides anywhere/anytime viewing, visualization and manipulation of images from all modalities. Clients are programmed using pure AJAX (HTML and Javascript), supported on any Web-enabled computing device, and provide both a mouse-based and multi-touch user interface (UI). 

With a zero footprint architecture, Nil clients run securely and instantly and leave no trace in memory when closed, thus requiring no IT support. Server-side software requires no special graphics hardware, allowing it to be easily virtualized and run in the cloud. The system uses highly optimized client-server communication to remain usefully responsive even over connections with limited bandwidth and high latency, such as cellular 3G.

NilShare and NilRead can be integrated in any DICOM network and be purchased as turn-key systems by hospitals, imaging groups or radiology practices. Claron plans to file a Class II 510k submission for NilRead with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the end of the year.

Claron will also debut release 2.0 of WithInsight Framework (WIF), a collection of software building blocks for accelerating development of a wide range of medical imaging applications. In this latest release, WIF has been ported to C#, expanded to provide more than 10,000 functions, and optimized to run faster and generate higher quality images.

In addition to supporting desktop and thin-client deployment, it now also supports zero-footprint technology, including the Nil family. WIF was commercially introduced in 2008.
